“You see a lot of leaders on the ground and they may not even know, ‘I am a leader.’ [They’re] just thinking, ‘I’m doing well, I’m trying to do something good.’ Those are the emerging leaders that would need further nurturing or further support for them to continue to grow and be able to make a bigger difference in the community.”
“To open up doors for diverse leaders coming on board, we as an organization and we as a society really have to recognize the value of diversity. It’s important that diversity means strength, that diversity means vibrancy. That’s key.”
